The history of Steel Group is linked to the huge changes that occurred in the industrial structure of Italy in the 1970s. The driving force of change, a trend towards globalisation that has not stopped since then.
The decentralisation of the production process started by large-scale industries at the end of that decade, was accompanied by the consequential thriving, particularly in the north-east of Italy, of supply companies. The development of these allied industries also led to the founding, in 1981, of Steel, the first company in the Group.
The three founding partners were contemplating a future that would prove to be full of opportunities, driven by their intention of supplying high-quality materials to the ever-increasing number of companies specialised in die making and in precision machining.
